If you’re looking for a smartphone laden with a long last-lasting battery without necessarily going out of your budget you might be in luck as the Realme C2 just arrived with a large battery at a giveaway price. Realme at its launch event in India today not only announced the much-rumored Realme 3 Pro but also unveiled the Realme C2- its latest entry-level smartphone and a mild upgrade to the Realme C1.
As we stated earlier, the Realme C2 isn’t a major upgrade over the RealmeC1 as it gets virtually the same specs and features as the C1, with the only notable upgrade been the switch from the SD 450 to MediaTek’s Helio P22, and perhaps a reduction of the wide notch to a dewdrop notch to offer a larger screen real estate with up to 89.35% screen-to-body ratio.
The phone comes fitted with a dual real cam – a 13-megapixel primary along with a secondary 2-megapixel secondary sensor for portrait shots and a 5-megapixel front camera with AI selfies. TheRealme C2 lacks a fingerprint scanner but supports facial unlock. It is fronted by a 6.1-inch HD+ dewdrop display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and Gorilla Glass 3 protection on top, while it has a 4000mAh battery.
Unlike the C1, the C2 boots Color OS 6.0, based on Android Pie out of the box, while it has Chroma Boost and some basic slow-mo – 80 fps at 480p.
